Blue Light Acne Therapy – Understanding the Basics

A BRIEF OVERVIEW

What are the Causes of Acne?

There are Four factors shown to cause acne including:
•    Hyperactive oil glands: Hyperactive oil glands occur in periods of stress and puberty due to hormonal changes causing the pores to be enlarged. Not only common for young people these days.  Adults can have acne at some points of their lives. This is mainly associated with stress.

•    Skin pore blockage: The pores are blocked resulting to trapping of the oils in the skin pores.

•    Normal flora of the skin activities: Oils are trapped under the skin and bacteria tends to grow there. As the bacteria releases chemicals, it alters the oil, which makes it even more irritating and results to inflammation of the skin.

•    Inflammation: Inflammation is produced when the body is trying to get rid of a foreign substance or is fighting off infection. In the case of acne, the body is trying to get rid of the irritating compounds that the normal bacteria are releasing.

The Treatment of Acne

Blue light therapy has gained in popularity for treating acne.

There are benefits from getting the Blue light therapy. It includes the following:
•    Painless
•    Less time for procedure
•    No recovery time required
•    UV rays-free light
•    Usually, two 15-minute sessions per week in four weeks
•    Effective in inflammatory acne

Blue Light Therapy is not a cure, instead, it is a way to significantly improve acne breakouts. Improve acne in just few sessions with Blue Light Therapy.
